 Post subject: which storage solution
PostPosted: Wed Nov 04, 2009 10:13 pm 
hello everyone

now i'm shooting a lot of pictures ( still in auto mode sorry :oops: )

i was wondering how to save them the best way...

should i create maps on a 2nd usb disk? or should i burn it to cd/dvd?

get a 3rd usbdisk that is hooligan proof to take with me.. or get heaps of memorycards?

any good advice is much apricciated ( hope i spelled it correctly)

thanks a lot Guys !

Jeroen :roll:

Hi JeroenE520,

If you are serious about not losing your images, I'd suggest:
1. External drive for parallel storage in a mobile package
2. Back-ups on DVDs stored on a different location

This should give you some protection against both disk-crashes on your computer and against fire/water and other on-site damage...

I'm not sure if you can get archival-quality DVDs, but there are archival-quality CDs...buut that may be too much effort against what is hopefully a very remote chance of everything breaking at the same time. 5 years from now there will be some sort of common Blue-Ray+ format that everyone has gone to anyway...

Cheers :-)
